Evangelist D. James Kennedy has passed away at the age of 76. Kennedy founded one of the first mega-churches, the 10,000 member Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Fl., and was a founder of the Moral Majority. He was an opponent of abortion and pornography and a supporter of prayer in school. Mark Tooley, of the Institute on Religion and Democracy, said Kennedy “fondly recalled some of America’s more admirably Christian attributes and he sought to perpetuate their memory.” Focus on the Family founder Dr. James Dobson said Kennedy was “strong in defence of faith, family, and most importantly, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” His Coral Ridge Hour was broadcast on 400 television and radio stations in 150 countries, with more than three million viewers and listeners. Kennedy retired from his ministry in August.
